Today is a bit more serious than usual.
One of my friends is part of a women’s circle which meets monthly. I think it started to support each other in all those little and not so little daily issues but now they have decided to organise a fundraising event to support other mothers and their children – refugees in Calais.
I was very much looking forward to be part of this community event and to contribute time and skills but we will already be away for a team baptism. So all I can do it to invite others to support this project by going to the fundraising event – a fun family event with arts and crafts, a raffle, food and more.
For those who would like to contribute but are unable to attend, there is also a fundraising page where you can donate as much or little as you can give. And obviously please share all these links through all your social media thingies.
And whilst I can not physically attend and help at the festival, I have still prepared a crafts activity that people will be able to carry out without me supervising them 🙂 :
fabric mosaic cards
I have been busy cutting small scraps into even tinier pieces, naively hoping it would reduce my stash significantly
And I made a sample card.
If you are unsure how to get from picture A to picture B, then check out this brilliantly written tutorial by my first and only guest writer.
Apart from this amazing activity I will also donate two pieces of handmade children clothes. I just don’t know yet if I will make them and donate them to be auctioned or if I should donate vouchers, as then the winner could choose size, style and colours, isn’t it. I am just not sure if that doesn’t get too complicated.
Might be a timing issue anyway, as I still need to make one baptism present sun hat and a dress for the mother of the other baptism team member. And we will be leaving on Thursday. I better get to work now.
